How to Get Tickets to Guns N’ Roses at Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky
Legendary rock band Guns N' Roses just announced their 2023 World Tour complete with a stop close to home. Zip up your leather jacket, lace up the combat boots, and get ready for some hard’n’heavy rock! We have the possible set list and presale code for early tickets.
In 2019 I got to see Guns N' Roses at the Louder Than Life Festival in Louisville. In the 80s' and 90s' they were one of my favorite rock bands. Although they've been through many line-up changes over the years, it was nice to see them all together in Louisville. It was great to hear Duff McKagan on bass, Slash slaying on guitar, and Dizzy Reed playing the piano. Axle Rose never sounded better after nearly 40 years of performing. That's why I couldn't hold back my excitement when I heard this news. Who's ready for a road trip?
It's hard to pick a favorite Guns N' Roses song. Don't you agree?
Guns N' Roses' debut album, Appetite for Destruction produced a handful of top 10 singles including, 'Welcome To The Jungle', Paradise City, and 'Sweet Child O' Mine' which reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 charts in 1987. These iconic rock songs are just some of the reasons why they were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012.
